Oregonian: Kate Brown's death penalty review slowly moves from back burner

September 19, 2015 SALEM — Eight days after taking office, Gov. Kate Brown said she would convene a small group of advisers to help her puzzle through one of Oregon's most contentious issues: the death penalty.

Now, seven months later, her office acknowledges she's just getting started.
